Guest Post + Review + Giveaway: Lindsay McFerrin

Welcome Linda Carroll-Bradd

I’m Lindsay McFerrin, living in surprisingly-civilized Kansas, where we do have cows, but also the likes of Tiffany & Co! I’m a graduate of Notre Dame Law School and spent 25 years as a trial lawyer while raising a family, which left little—I mean no—time for writing. Five years ago, I finally began to put down on paper what I’d been writing in my head!

The day I discovered Still Moments Publishing was a happy day. The concept of anthologies with specific themes was new to me, and I was drawn to SMP’s call for stories of romance during the Christmas season. An idea formed: A romance between two dog lovers, sparked by a sweet, giant, lonely dog.

The true-life story of my own Giant Alaskan Malamute went into Harbor Homecoming. A few years ago, as we toured a home for sale, the realtor warned us not to go into the back yard because of the owners’ enormous dog. He was beautiful but scary-looking, so we heeded the warning even though he gazed at us mournfully through the window. The day before we closed on the home, the owners said they’d moved to an apartment and couldn’t keep him! The rest is history.

The professional editing process with SMP—my first experience with this—was enlightening and really fun. I learned so much from my editor, Linda Pitts. I was thrilled when I learned she would edit my second story for SMP, an upcoming stand-alone romance book entitled Aspen Shift about a sexy, manly shape-shifter!!

Congrats to all the other Christmas Anthology authors! And thanks for the opportunity to talk with you today.

Harbor Homecoming by Lindsay McFerrin

The supporting cast was equally entertaining and fun including the dog! Readers will love the dog in this story, and personally I want a Bear for my very own.
